Penitent Magdalen

After Guido Reni. Sold at the Tusing Gallery, Staunton, VA.

Flora, Oil on Canvas, 14 X 16

I am the handmaid of the earth,
I broider fair her glorious gown,
And deck her on her days of mirth
With many a garland of renown

Girl, 12 X 16 oil on canvas

O cloud-pale eyelids, dream-dimmed eyes,
The poets labouring all their days
To build a perfect beauty in rhyme
Are overthrown by a woman's gaze
William Butler Yeats
